I think basically in brazilian culture the e ending is pronounced as eee.

Like caroline trentini in english would be cay roh ly n. But I always here them and herself say cay roh leen eee

if anyone wondered: Caitriona is pronounced like 'Katrina' . She's saying it herself in the H&M films.

A few pronunciation questions

Is Jeisa like HAY-SAH? And what about that last name?!?

I'm having an argument with one of my friends, and I need it in words to prove I'm right- it's JEM-MAH Ward, and is not pronounced how it's written, right?

And Daria- is it really VHERE-BO-VEY, (though I will totally pronounce it like it's spelled )is it not?

Thanx

ok for Jeisa, I'm pretty sure it's pronounced je-IH-zaa.

You're saying Gemma right.

And, I'm not really sure about Daria. I think that's how you say it though.

I remember a gisele interview were she said that her name is acutally originaly Gee-seh-lee, but everyone at her agency/clients kept mispronouncing it so she just switched to being ok with "gee-sell" the way everyone pronounced it...

Yeah you're right, it's Gee-seh-lee in portuguese but apparently english speaking people say Gee-sell.

i thought so too until Laska in the Snejana thread said its "Sne-zha-na."

wow i've been totally butchering their names too..thank you everyone!!

what about Emina's last name?
its spelled Cunmulaj on her thread, but in a ModTV clip they kept spelling it Cunmalaj?
either way, i'm pretty clueless. -laj is like "lah", "lay"?

a few more...
Anja Rubik is "An-ya"?
Caroline Winberg, just as it is, or is there Swedish pronunciation?
Freja Beha Erichsen is "Fre-ya" and "Beh-ha"?

sorry to be so annoying and clueless thanks in advance!

little help for fashpass
Kamila Szczawinska:
SZ=sh it should sounds as in word shirt
cz=ch it should sounds as in word cheque
w should sounds as English v in word vein
and now we've got a pronlem because there is a letter in her surname which exist only in Polish I mean it's "n" but there is a backslash above it which change it completely...unfortunately it's impossible to explain it..but i think you can pronounce it as "n",kamila won't be angry,i think
Ewa Witkowska
as above W should sounds as english V
E should sounds as in word empty
Anja Rubik
crea is right,it hould be pronounce as ANYA
What about Daria?
I don't know actually.she lives in Canada but her surname is still Slavic not French.Anyways i pronounce it as VERBOVY.
i hope that i helped a little...
